Vermont Fall Foliage Bike Tours

  • Reviews

Tour Overview

Vermont's Finest Foliage, By Bicycle

Our award-winning Vermont Fall Foliage bike tours sell out quickly. And, one of the top bicycle tours in New England includes a combination of our award-winning Lake Champlain Valley tour and the region around Stowe, best known as the Ski Capital of the East. The trip begins with three days of cycling in the Champlain Valley before winding north and east to Stowe for three days. Fall foliage colors lining the route in this region are among the most spectacular in Vermont and all of New England.

Ride through several of Vermont’s timeless covered bridges and visit the Old Round Church. Sample cider and donuts at a local orchard. Enjoy a taste of IPA from a small craft brewery or sample award-winning vodka from the top distiller in the US. Fill the support van with woolens from a family mill that’s been operating since the mid-1800s. Bike the narrow route through the cliffs of Smuggler’s Notch, so named for the passage of illicit goods during Prohibition.

Accommodations feature charming country inns and a small luxury resort. This trip offers an exclusive and exquisite stay, and dinner at The Inn at Shelburne Farms. Unwind in the casual comfort of a historical Vermont treasure and luxuriate in an intimate hillside oasis. Vermont has an extensive network of organic and local food producers and meals will include the freshest of these local ingredients.
